DRESDEN, Tenn. — Monday night in Dresden, a much deserved celebration took place as over 300 members of the community came together to congratulate their victorious team.

“We’ll be remembered; all of us. We had good coaching and everything else. The community came out and supported us real big. We had a big crowd every game. We couldn’t have done it without everybody that helped us out,” said Dylan Yates, senior and running back.

The Lions ended their season with an impressive 15 and 0 undefeated record and are hoping to follow that same game plan again next season.
